The speech-language pathologists provide a wide range of services on an individual basis for patients and provide information for the general public.

Speech therapy begins with initial screening for communication and swallowing disorders and continues with the diagnosis and treatment, and provision counselling and other follow up services for these disorders.

Hearing can be measured by behavioural tests using an audiometer. Apart from testing hearing, part of the function of audiometry is in assessing or evaluating hearing from the test results. The most commonly used assessment of hearing is the determination of the threshold of audibility, i.e. the level of sound required to be just audible.

There are defined degrees of hearing loss as given below.

Mild hearing loss: People who suffer from mild hearing loss have difficulties keeping up with conversations, especially in noisy surroundings.

Moderate hearing loss: People who suffer from moderate hearing loss have difficulty keeping up with conversations when they are not using a hearing aid.

Severe hearing loss: People who suffer from severe hearing loss depend on powerful hearing aid. However, they often rely on lip-reading even when they are using hearing aids.

Profound hearing loss: People who suffer from profound hearing loss are very hard of hearing and they mostly rely on lip-reading and sign language.

Electrophysiological tests of hearing can provide accurate measurements of hearing thresholds in the subjects.
